We don’t speak French here at ComingSoon.net, but apparently, the guys at The Playlist do, which is why a story in the French paper Les Dernières Nouvelles dAlsace (subsequently reprinted in French on Cinema Teaser) about French actor Gilles Lellouche joining Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes 2 along with Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Noomi Rapace, has now been reported.
Lellouche appeared in Guillame Canet’s Tell No One, a hit both in France and the U.S., as well as Canet’s follow-up Little White Lies, which played at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year. He also appeared in the recently-released Mesrine: Killer Instinct opposite Vincent Cassel.
Lellouche will be appearing in an unrevealed role when the production shoots for a day at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, although the paper is saying that neither Downey nor Law would be in the scenes shot there.
Sherlock Holmes 2 is scheduled for release on December 16, 2011.
